Pastoral Center Phone System Disruption. Our telecom provider has experienced a major problem with their circuits coming into Long Island.  This is resulting in difficulty for individuals trying to contact the pastoral center offices by phone.  Individuals calling the pastoral center might get a message indicating that “all circuits are busy, please try later.” We might suggest using cell phone numbers, texting or email as alternatives. The telecom provider is working on the issue. We will update you as the situation changes. Thank you. Updated 8/5/14 at 1:23:PM EDT.
